Jamie's Minestrone

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2008
This was great, we all loved it. We even ate the leftovers which is saying a lot because we are not the leftover types. I added some ground beef and served french bread. Great dinner. Next time I'll maybe add tiny meatballs. This was great thanks!!!

Playgroup Granola Bars

Reviewed: May 15, 2008
These were really great. I originally made them for my 2 year old and they were a little to difficult for him to eat, so I brought them to work and they were gone before lunch! Someone else had made cookies and these bars went faster than the cookies. I added some dried blueberries and everyone loved them and two asked for the recipe. Thanks!

Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies II

Reviewed: May 23, 2008
These are great after reading the reviews I too used only butter. I had been using a recipe that I have had for a long time and hubby didn't want me to try anything new, but I did anyways, hehe. These are now his and my favorite. Thanks for the great recipe!

Jay's Signature Pizza Crust

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2008
Good, not great. The dough was very sticky and I had to us a lot of extra flour to be able to kneed it. I will probably try this again and will add some stuff to spice up the dough a little. I think that it is also really important that you use a great sauce and great cheese too.

Boston Iced Tea

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2008
Good, a little tart b/c of the cranberry. I couldn't find the regular concentrate so I used the cocktail. I tried using only a half a cup of sugar as the others suggested when you use the cocktail, but it was still way too bitter. So I used the whole cup and everyone liked it and thought it was a great new way to do iced tea. I still thought it was a bit too bitter.

Best Lemonade Ever

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2008
Made this for a bridal shower and was good. I needed 2 lbs of lemons to make the juice. I used a citrus press and worked well.

French Bread Rolls to Die For

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2008
First try at making any type of bread and I used all purpose flour, because I read the recipe wrong. Will probably try again with bread flour next time.

Italian Vegetable Soup with Beans, Spinach & Pesto

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2008
This was a good basic recipe that needed "something" Hubby and I liked it but felt that it was missing something that we couldn't figure out. It was a little bland. I added garlic to the onion when cooking and added some parmesan cheese too. Will make again but will probably change up a few things.

Easy Granola Bars

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2008
Kinda tasted like a cookie bar. Would defiantly reduce the amount of chocolate chips next time. This was super easy to make and will try and change up the ingredients next time.

Italian Spaghetti Sauce with Meatballs

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2008
Made this tonight. I was not sure if I really liked it or if it was just ok. Hubby really liked it, but thought that it was rich. I felt like I was gonna have heartburn later. I thought that the meatballs were very good. As for the sauce, I needed to add more sugar because of the acidy tomatoes. Followed the recipe otherwise. This Is a maybe make again for me. Will be checking out other recipes first.

Italian Chicken Marinade

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2008
Ya a whole bottle is a little much, but recipe is great. I use my vacuum seal machine to marinate. Just put chicken in bag with marinade and then vacuum seal. It really sucks all the marinade into the chicken. I also use italian dressing as my cooking oil sometimes when coking inside. But then you only need to use a few table spoons.

Gobble Up Granola Snacks

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2008
These were great! I love these and will make these from now on. I love how you don't have to spend time baking and can change up the bars and make different varieties. I didn't have corn syrup so I used honey. This time I made them with out the raisins but added mini chocolate chips. They definitely melted but tasted great. They came out great and everyone at our play group loved them and couldn't get enough. Net time I will try cinnamon and raisin. Thanks!

Breaded Chicken Fingers

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2008
Really Great, Made these tonight for company. I used my food saver to marinate these, which really helps the marinate get in the chicken. I also used panko Japanese style crumbs with a little extra seasoning.

Zucchini Herb Casserole

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2008
Excellent!!! Looked just like the pictures and was fairly easy to make. Smelled so good while cooking I had to try. It was great even before the rice and cheese. Can't wait to make again. Thanks for this great recipe!

Soft Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2008
Really, really good especially when warm. This made a ton of cookies, had to give some away to neighbors. Husband who doesn't really like oatmeal cookies, thought that these were great too. I didn't press the cookies down and added raisins.

Apple Squares

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2008
OMG!!! These were sooo good. I thought that they were very easy to make too. They just got out of the oven and thought that they were not going to live up to my expectations, but I was wrong they are great! Thanks so much for the great recipe.
